The Yellow Gangstaz - Backstage Swagpost  


This is for The Yellow Gangstaz! Anyone else who wanders past better be prepared for the consequences >:(!

Gosh, there won't really be any consequences, we are friendly gangstaz right? Welcome, you all! This is going to be our post for socialising, for organising, for just generally checking in and getting to know one another! If there's anything else you'd really like to see here, please say so!

I don't really have any graphics for us right now, but if any of you want to make something then please please go right ahead! This is interactive fun, and it's our fun, so if graphics are something that appeal to you then please don't be shy!

After the Opening Ceremony, I'll have everyone's backstage passes posted HERE. Be sure to come back and grab those, okay?

So first of all, to get things going in here, I'm going to ask you all to post a bit! THIS IS ENTIRELY OPTIONAL, BUT HERE GOES:

1. Who are you!
Just give us your name, link to your post if you like!
2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz?
Why did you pick this team? Was it because you love the genre, or because you like Kou-kun, or the colour yellow, or some other reason?
3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands?
Do you consider yourself a competitive person, or are you more interested in the social aspect of team activities? Do you want to WIN!!, or just take part? Tell me what you're looking forward to!
4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend!
That's music artists, of course. Any rappers you're super fond of? Please feel free to share! And any nationality is fine, of course!



The main reason I'm asking is just to try and get a feel for what sort of team we have here! The most important thing here is that we all enjoy ourselves, and for me personally that means knowing just what kinda game you guys want to play. Do we want to throw ourselves into this full force, go all out, win all the points and crush our foes? Do we want to take it as easy as anything and just eat far too much cake and feel smug? Do we want something in between? I DON'T KNOW, GUYS, YOU TELL ME. I'll answer the questions in a comment too, of course! Lets get to know each other, team mates! \o

NOW: AN ANNOUNCEMENT

Just to make this as clear as possible for you all: I am moving house this month. I have a new job starting in Far Away City on Thursday 1st August. My new house will not be available until at least the 12th, ahaha, which means I am moving into temporary accommodation on Tuesday 30th July.

What does this mean for my participation in BotB? Well, hopefully very little. The temporary accommodation claims to have free wifi, and internet will be a number one priority at the new house, so I'm hoping for absolute minimal disruption. But this is my warning to you all just in case. I'm really sorry for any trouble this might cause, though I have every confidence you all can keep things going smoothly without me!

Anyway, I'll leave this here for now! I'M SORRY THIS IS SUCH A BORING POST, I'LL MAKE IT COOLER SOON. S-so come and relax, gangstaz! THIS IS OUR CRIB I GUESS??? /s-swags out of here......

gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on July 28th, 2013 06:43 pm (UTC)
And my answers, as promised!

1. Who are you!
I'm Gargant. I've been a member of Colors since... I'm going to say November 2012, and a mod for a considerably shorter amount of time, hahaha. I always consider myself a new player, but given Red Ribbon Army and suchlike I should probably stop!

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz?
I suppose my answer to this will be a little different to everyone else's by default, but I mostly ended up fronting this particular team by chance. A lot of the other teams/genres had already been assigned by the time I got to looking at the options, and in the end I decided to go with gangsta rap because I thought it would be amusing to put the plushiest fluffiest least assertive mod in charge of arguably the least fluffy genre. THAT'S IT, THAT'S THE WHOLE REASON, I'M SORRY.

I'm really hoping to learn a bit more about the genre by undertaking this! And I'm really excited to get to know everyone, hahaha,

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands?
It's probably already apparent by now, but more than anything else I just want everyone to be having as much fun as possible. I mentioned on the anonymous feedback post that I want my team to be a relaxed place, somewhere for less competitive players to chill out and enjoy participating without feeling any undue pressure. But equally I want those of a more competitive bent to be able to give it everything they have and feel like it isn't a wasted effort, you know? Basically I just want to support everyone, hahaha. We're a crew, we've got each others backs >:(

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
I REALLY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS GENRE, SEND HELP. The only rapper I really listen to regularly is Dizzee Rascal...
Fix Up, Look Sharp
Just A Rascal
Graftin
(I am a heratic though I enjoy his goofier newer omg-too-mainstream stuff too, such as...)
Bonkers
Dance Wiv Me

Otherwise my knowledge is kinda restricted to, like, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five or The Sugarhill Gang and I don't think you can. even vaguely call that gangsta rap, ahaha...

C-CAUSE OTHERWISE I'D BE A NERVOUS WRECK WHEN IT COMES TO TALKING TO THE FRONTPERSONTHINGY Just stay like that. Yeah.

1. Who are you! i'm gigi! i joined colors back in june, and my card post is right here!
2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? this is going to make me an embarrassing team mate, but i picked the yellow gangstaz because it was one of the only teams left, and [personal profile] commandant and i wanted to be on the same team! i'm not... terribly fond of rap music, honestly. (i'm sorry kou-kun...!)
3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? i'm just looking forward to taking part and having fun! i can be competitive, but hopefully not enough to get pushy!
4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend? nnnnnnnno. i do quite like this remix of eminem's when i'm gone with don't speak her name from fe:a, if that counts...!
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on July 28th, 2013 07:30 pm (UTC)
YO GIGI

That is a perfectly valid reason to pick a team! DON'T WORRY, WE'RE ALL EMBARRASSING HERE. I'm glad you guys got to be on the team together; I totally have a friend in this team for exactly the same kind of reasons, hahaha.

Also I completely misread your recommendation at first and was like 'eminem did music for Fire Emblem?!', FFT. THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU WERE SAYING.
[personal profile] ex_painter182 on July 29th, 2013 03:32 am (UTC)
1. Who are you!
Bao! (You might know me by another name in another tcg though, lmao, THINGS HAPPEN!!) I've been a member since... August 2012! Doesn't feel that long, whaaaaaaat.

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? Gin-sensei is too popular for his own good even though I still like him, I've always had a soft spot for Kou-kun. T_T

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? Hopefully boost my participation level in Colors! I seem to be losing steam in Colors' games so this will be an incentive for me since.............. idk...... LET'S WIN SOME SWAG! ;w;?

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
...I don't listen to much rap tbh. I'm kinda stuck between rock and pop most of the time. So you can throw raps at me, I don't mind...? 8)a

Can we go out, win some points, eat some cake, cake-smash some foes all at the same time? 8)b
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on July 29th, 2013 07:56 pm (UTC)
Hi ho, Bao! I think you might be the veteran of this team, hahah, I'm not sure if any of us have been here quite so long as you have. We will all gaze at you with stars in our eyes *-*

BUT YES, LET'S WIN SOME SWAG. I think attaining ultimate swag levels is a good goal for this team, I support it utterly. And don't worry about not listening to much rap, that seems to be a running theme with us so far, hahaha.

Thanks for being here, yo! \o\

Ten: Kida is the smoothest.[personal profile] adurotum on July 29th, 2013 04:27 am (UTC)
1. Who are you!
I'm Ten! I joined as a part of the Red Ribbon Army in June this year so I am... technically still new since it's only been like two months (how has it only been two months).

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz?
S... See icon, I play (rp-wise) a lot of blonds with gang/mafia/etc affliations. I also greatly enjoy horrible parody rap so really there wasn't any other team I could go to. It was meant to be.

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands?
My first time in one of these so I don't have very many expectations other than having fun and possibly kindness terrorizing the other teams through bad rap (I don't regret that at all).

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
I DON'T... ACTUALLY LISTEN TO MUCH RAP MUSIC the rappers I respect are the really old ones like Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, etc...
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on July 29th, 2013 08:03 pm (UTC)
Hey Ten! \o\

I am completely in awe of that ridiculous trade post rap battle, I'm not sure I'm witty enough to pull that off myself. DON'T LAUGH AT ME OKAY, rap is way too close to poetry and that is totally my huge blind spot, hahaha. But I love this idea, I want to kindness terrorise all the teams with our rap skill, hahaha.

Also I just lost too much time to Epic Rap Battles, curse you. ALSO bring us all your blond gang/mafia types, I need material for graphics >:(!

Muri: Mokou → Touhou Project[personal profile] zettaimuri on July 29th, 2013 04:36 pm (UTC)
1. Who are you!
My name is Muri and I joined at the end of last year. Colors is my first TCG and it's been loads of fun but I've been struggling a little bit with general motivation recently so I may go on hiatus after this even just to recharge.

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz?
Most of the other groups were metal which I'm not all that fond of. One the other hand I've found myself growing more and more fond of rap music lately. I don't really know a lot about the genre though so I hope I can come out of this with lots of new artists to listen to.

Also Kou is a cutie. (*´∇`*)

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands?
I'd never been in a Colors league before so I wanted to try it out. Although I've been slowing down a bit with the game lately if I need to I can pull out all the stops for this! Mostly I just want to try it out and see how it goes.

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
I-I'm sorry I really don't have anything to offer. It's really something I'm only just getting into so I don't really have anything to recommend yet.

So I'm just going to spam Touhou rap arranges and remixes because that's how I roll!

Five Sabo Mystars
狂気に満ちた不可視の珠 feat. ytr
slushy poetry feat. 妖狐
ドタ☆バタ紅魔館

So none of it's really gangster rap but it's the best I can do I am so so sorry (ノ△・。)

YO MURIIII

Recharging is good, and a feeling I can totally relate to. Hopefully this event will indeed inspire you, but totally don't feel any undue pressure, okay? WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK, YO

Also I don't know how to classify gangsta rap, frankly, but we're the only rap based team so I say we should just go ahead and monopolise all the rap in all genres. Which is to say, these links are really fun and I think they totally count >:(
Tibby: Discworld | Wolf at the door[personal profile] bakerloo on July 29th, 2013 05:29 pm (UTC)
1. Who are you! I am Tibby, and I've been playing at Colours for about three months now. My journal is [personal profile] bakerloo. You can find all my Colours-related posts there. :3

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? Gargant lured me here and locked me in the cupboard. ;__;

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? I heard cake. Where is cake. :< Apart from that, I'm not really competitive so I'm quite happy with just having fun! Someone else suggested kindness terrorising other teams with bad rap, which I like the idea of very much.

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
Umm... Gargant already posted a lot of Dizzee Rascal's music. He's one of the only rappers I listen to, really. Would Faithless count? It's rap, but it's more dancey than gangsta. Oh, and of course Hiphopopotamus and the Rhymenoceros. Who's the mother flipper?
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on July 29th, 2013 08:19 pm (UTC)
Yo yo, Tibby! I forced nothing, you came here of your own volition darn it, this is a happy gangster utopia >:(

Like I mentioned to Muri, we're the only team associated to rap so we might as monopolise it all, right? SO FAITHLESS CAN COUNT, I DON'T. SEE WHY NOT... Also that second link is amazing and you should feel amazing.

(And btw your picture for The Orange Pranksters was wonderful, silly, you should not fret about such things!)

1. Who are you! Kiss, been in and out of colors since early 2011.
2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? Because I like yellow a lot and prayed to numerous gods that I would end up on the yellow team.
3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? I've never actually done any group stuff in a TCG before??? So yay, my cherry has been popped. Here's to the yellow team and all the swag we'll no doubt receive.
4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend? I LIKE RAP but my rap tastes embarrass me so I have nothing to recommend /)_(\

KISS, NO, YOU HAVE TO RECOMMEND THINGS, YOU'RE THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAS CLAIMED TO ACTIVELY ENJOY RAP SO FAR, we're all depending on you man ;a;

But really, this is a SHAME FREE GANG, gangstaz ain't got no shame, just endless swagullence. And I hope you have fun participating! I honestly think this the first time for all of us except Bao, so we can. all figure this out together. A VERY REASSURING ATTITUDE FROM YOUR FRONTMAN, YES...
Charlotte[personal profile] hyoga on July 29th, 2013 08:24 pm (UTC)
1. Who are you! I'm Charlotte, I've only been around since February of this year. My card post is located here!
2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? I, uh. I just chose my favourite colour haha.
3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? I'm just interested in taking part, because it looks like it'll fun! And I tend to not take part in things like this, so I thought I'd stop being so shy and give it a try. I'm not all that competitive, but I'll be trying my best to get points.
4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend? ...... I'm sorry, I don't know a thing about this genre! I will give everyone else's recommendations a listen, however!
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on July 29th, 2013 08:37 pm (UTC)
YO CHARLOOOOTTE, it seems like ages since we last traded, what is up with that :<

You are the second person who chose this team because yellow, hahaha, that is a totally acceptable reason. But ahh, I'm glad to have to aboard! I know for a fact we have a few shy/quieter members on this team, so hopefully that'll all combine to make a pleasant atmosphere for us to game away in. Let's give it our light-hearted best, I guess!

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? Gargant put it well with the whole being amused by the fluffiest guy in the unfluffiest genre.
3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? A good laugh and maybe a couple of cards?

erin! my first run here at colors was in '10, but stuff happened and i got lax? so i just decided it would be better to come off hiatus with a totally fresh start this past year! c:

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz?
tbh it wasn't my first pick? or second... or third... ),: but i'm more into rap than a lot of other genres, so it was at least one of my picks lmao!

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands?
fun, of course! and profit. >:} go 'n get ya money cards lil' duffle bag boy nerd~

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
i really like tech n9ne, nicki minaj, and kanye west??? there's a few others but already i fear i'm getting into explicit and inappropriate for a family-friendly tcg range lmao... especially considering my personal tastes... :,)

Also I am charmed that you do not want to recommend explicit songs while using that icon, hahaha. NOT THAT I'M. COMPLAINING ABOUT THE ICON AS SUCH........

Lili: (>Д<)[personal profile] muchourin on July 30th, 2013 01:06 am (UTC)
1. Who are you!
Lili~ (exclamation marks feel odd to me so I don't normally use them). I joined October 2012. Doesn't really feel long even though it's already over half a year? It's probably easy to recognize me I think as all my icons are of this peanut like creature called Tipo(JP)/Teepo(ENG).
Oh yeah there was this other Lili who was here and quit way before I joined so idk fun fact...?

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz?
Um...CAUSE YOU SEE I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO JOIN CAUSE I DON'T LISTEN TO ANY GENRE OF THE BANDS SO I JUST PICKED BY CHARACTER. Technically I had first sights on either Brown or Gray but then stuff happens and they're full..er so I gave Kou-kun a chance (who's art I found the cutest) as my first choice instead (he was in 3rd after those two above). OH GOD TALKING TO RAVEN CAN GIVE ME A HEART ATTACK Also I don't know anyone here (save one person but she's not participating in BOTB) in colors so anyone's fine with me just not whichever raven's the head of cause I don't know if I can can since I just can't

3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands?
...first time in this sorta thing so i don't knowwwwwww

4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend?
Can't.recommend.cause.i.only.listen.to.anisongs.and.stuff...


ps oh yeah since i don't know no one here nor on dw as well you can add me if you want idk it's up to you /kinda lonesome here i guess

gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on August 1st, 2013 09:49 pm (UTC)
Lili!! You do not have to use exclamation marks at all, but please be prepared for the fact that I rather abuse them, hahaha. As for your icons, Xilia isn't actually out in the UK yet (it's a matter of days now, though!), but here is slightly embarrasing picture of me, Teepo and Baba-san taken in May, lmao. I WAS TRYING TO LEAN TOWARD TEEPO BUT IT KINDA LOOKS LIKE I'M LEANING ON BABA-SAN, I'M NOT REALLY A CREEP I SWEAR...

Anyway, Kou-kun is a good choice! I quite like the sort of polite gangsta thing that's going on with him, I think it captures this team quite well all in all. I hope you're happy to be here! And crumbs, I'll certainly add you! I don't really update my DW much to be honest, but I'm always looking for reasons to try and be more proactive about that :>!

2. How did you end up with The Yellow Gangstaz? IT NEEDED MEMBERS, my favorite genre was not any of the teams, and my favorite manga right now is Gangsta so I figured that was as goo a reason as any (not really but shhh)
3. What do you want from Battle of the Bands? I JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN winning would be great but as long as everyone has fun that'd be great. Also I guess I want to learn how to rap battle like Ten.
4. Finally, do you have any artists you want to recommend? I don't really do rap... Or much music with vocals at all??? the Space Jam song is rap right?? Can every space jam remix collectively be our team song because that would be great.
Also I guess Battlecry is both rap and something from Japanese media so it even fits Colors' spirit HAHA. It's also just a really good song.

But no seriously team space jam for president. (I'm sorry I'll see myself out)

GAME FOUR
This game is kind of tricky, but we can definitely get there. Three of you already have, go go Charlotte, Kiss and Tote! YOU ARE BETTER THAN ME, MY HEAD COULDN'T EVEN BEGIN TO WRAP AROUND THIS LAST NIGHT

Here's the game!
Fuselage[personal profile] fuselage on August 5th, 2013 11:18 pm (UTC)
Re: GAME FOUR
OK, in case anyone is finding it incredibly hard to do this, (like I did), this is the way I did it. And I got it down pat within 30 minutes.

The color-related cipher is the easiest. You can put in almost ANY word like 'Guava' (= light green fruit) or 'Snape' (= favorite color is black), and POW!, you're 90% finished. Once you've got about 2-3 words in and cannot find another word to fit, this website will be your best friend.

That website will list down ALL words that fit your criteria and list it's definitions! So all you gotta do is scroll through perhaps 10-100 words just finding the word you want.

With the music-related cipher, I added in 2 music-related terms taken from here. For the latter 2 words, you can either take 1 more word from that music glossary website (if you can find a word that fits), or again, go to that crossword-solver website.

Next thing you know, it's done, BOO-YEAH.

GAME FIVE
Here we are, at game five, with our REALLY QUITE GREAT song under way. I've gone ahead and done the first comment, as I'm not sure how common cards beginning with 'Y' actually are.

As I mentioned there, are colour submission order is going to be:

brown > gray > red > orange > yellow > green > blue > purple

Repeating back to brown again after that. As ever, if we get to a point where we're stuck then please feel free to consider my trade pile. Just make sure to let me know if you're needing to take a card from it!

Don't forget, guys, we have until the 24th to do this, so no need to rush! This is always going to be about having fun, so don't feel any crazy pressure to chain comments ASAP. Just take it slow and steady, be careful to read what came before, and let's get ourselves some prizes! \o\

Re: GAME FIVE
Hi! I'd like to trade for your inspector13 to continue the chain. (currently at brown I) Here's my pile.
we might need to fix the "H" in "this" for a purple card

PS: sorry if it seems presumptuous to donate the card before trading, but I just want to get my donations done asap

GAME SIX
I am going to assume the reason we're the last team to get started on this is because we're all cripplingly self-conscious. It's certainly the reason I've been unnecessarily nervous, gfhdsj.

But our thread is here, guys, let's see what we can throw together! Tentatively started off on the same kind of tone as our opening song, but feel free to stick whatever kinda lyrics you like in there! KEY WORDS/PHRASES INCLUDE: SWAG, POSSE, CREW, THE HOOD, SWAG, KOU-KUN, and I'm just going to say swag again I really should have used swag somewhere in the first line idk.

SONGS ARE HARD, BUT WE ARE GREAT, BELIEVE IN GANGSTAZ AND PREVAIL

Here we go!

GAME EIGHT
This is a co-operative challenge, so all feel free to post your code pieces here! Together we can figure it all out, right?



The post is over here!
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on August 8th, 2013 09:09 pm (UTC)
SPOILERS - THE ANSWER IS IN THIS COMMENT
Alternatively, if you're a total jerk like me, you might have already figured it out. When the Gray Destroyers handed their answers in, it became clear the answers were deck names. Using the knowledge and the few letters we already have available, I am pretty sure I have it figured out. BUT I KNOW THAT ISN'T FUN FOR EVERYONE, SO IF YOU WANT TO SOLVE IT YOURSELF DO NOT READ THIS COMMENT ANY FURTHER.

If you want the answer, I am pretty darn sure that this is it!! But we can definitely wait a bit longer for confirmations, let's gather more code you guys!

So I'm not really sure what the policy on sharing answers for this new game is, but if anyone's interested I'm fairly sure I've got it solved. I imagine at the very least it'd be a bad idea to post in the swag post?
gekigengar gargant III!!![personal profile] aestivalis on August 10th, 2013 07:16 am (UTC)
Unfortunately, we've now entered closed posts, which means we are no longer allowed to assist each other or share answers. Which is terrible because I am absolutely struggling with this and would have loved to accept your answer, hahaha!

Policy for all games here on out should be... if you have broad advice on a game, I feel like that's acceptable. So for example, if Moon hadn't provided guides on how to complete this manner of puzzle, it would be fine to post those here. But no direct advice allowed, so no saying... idk, 'the first row looks like this, try and figure out from there!' or anysuch. We do not want to get in trouble, hahaha.

Re: GAME TWELVE
I wouldn't say useless O_O your question on game 11 basically trivialized the game into putting all the card links from a set color into a spreadsheet and alphabetizing the deck links. THANKS :D!

I just want to say thank you to [personal profile] aestivalis for being the leader and thanks to all members from this band for making this crew. We may not have taken ranking places but we were close! Looking at the results spreadsheet, I felt like banging my head against the wall for forgetting to post my answers to round nine. It was a picture of a guitar, by the way. I certainly had fun with this event and hope to see everyone still around for next year's event.

Have a great week!
